Re: "I hope you're watching!"

I think Lynwood has it right. Bush is trying to win the game on every play instead of taking what the defense (or punt coverage) gives him. He's in a slump and he has the professional attitude to get over it.

Sure, he is never going to be a power runner, but he can be a consistent threat to take it to the house. You can't overlook the value he brings with his receiving skills. And I've seen 3 linebackers follow him to one side of the field when he doesn't even have the ball. That in itself is huge.

He is in the dog house right now with the fans and coach, as he should be. But he will get out of it as long as he stays healthy.

I bet if they tracked arm tackles, Bush would lead the league. He's so easy to bring down. He plays scared.

I've been a big defender of Bush because he contributes in so many aspects of the game, but he's been forcing it going on 4 years now. The offense, even when we're playing slow, has a real good rhythm. They just flow down the field, everyone seems poised and focused. Then Reggie comes in and spazzes out. He's becoming more and more like the proverbial scoop of dog poop in the barrel full of ice cream.

Re: "I hope you're watching!"

i love reggies ability but this game put me over the edge.....even when he has a decent outing yardage-wise, its still overshadowed by a turnover because that is what hes becoming known for

im on the PT bandwagon now after that showin against the jets....he showed me heart....thats what i wasnt seeing from games in the past.....you got me now PT, dont let me down

Bush is the most expensive decoy in the league.
A buddy of mine wants to take him duck hunting.

Re: "I hope you're watching!"

Going to be hard for me to bash him too hard but disappointing would be a good start. Hard to say what his role will be here if any in the future. He just does not get the job done. Team is carrying this guy on their backs (Thomas, Bell and Hamiliton) Don't want to see him crawl in a hole but he should really be ashamed. Will this motivate him or has his confidence been so rattled that he will not recover is the question. Sure lacks power the competition rocks him everytime or he runs out of bounds. Could sign him up for a clay eating contest because his face winds up up the dirt more often than not.

Not sure I buy that anymore either. Scooting out of bounds 3 yards before contact instead of turning it upfield for more yardage isn't my idea of trying to win on every play.

Reggie is still an assett to this team, but as a 3rd RB or a change of pace scat back.

Re: "I hope you're watching!"

Reggie's favorite play...

Take a HB dive play, bounce it outside, and run it out of bounds. In a game of physical contact, where every inch counts, Reggie is what you consider soft. I really hope he finishes the season strong and on the upswing... he'll have much more trade value during the off season.
